PLINE VERTEX DELETES WHEN COPYING/MOVING/ROTATING

PLINE VERTEX DELETES WHEN COPYING/MOVING/ROTATING

(OP)
FOR SOME REASON MY SUPERVISOR IS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH HIS POLY LINES SOMETIMES REMOVING VERTEXES WHEN HE COPIES, MOVES, OR ROTATES THEM. ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO FIX THIS, OR WHAT HE MAY BE DOING TO CAUSE THIS? IT DOESN'T HAPPEN EVERY TIME SO HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO REPEAT IT.

RE: PLINE VERTEX DELETES WHEN COPYING/MOVING/ROTATING

ALL CAPS TEXT IS SHOUTING. THIS IS RUDE. STOP DOING IT, UNLESS YOU ARE ANGRY AND WANT US TO BE ANGRY TOO.

Polylines closed or open?
Have they had vertices edited before this problem happened?
Was this line work exported from another program, generated by LISP, or imported from a DXF or other vector file format?

RE: PLINE VERTEX DELETES WHEN COPYING/MOVING/ROTATING

Possibly due to being far from the origin (very large coordinate values).
Did you check object properties to see if it actually had fewer vertices, versus just blue symbols not displaying?

(OP)
Apologies, not shouting. I normally have my caps lock on for drawing at work just don't always think about taking it off.
Unsure if they are open or closed. Typically he does a poly line edit to join them together
He doesn't know how to edit vertices.
unsure if they were imported from another program. but i don't believe so.
it happens with radii & clips.
